“A great stay at the Atrium.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stayed in room 202 and had a view of the pool and bay. The room was renovated and was beautiful. We love all the trees on the property. Everyone was friendly and helpful. What a great location-next to lots of activities. Absolutely no complaints.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The first week in March we stayed at the Atrium Resort, Simpson Bay, St. Martin and it was a very pleasant experience. Fortunately we had some friends who had stayed there before and they gave it a good recommendation. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and well kept. The hotel is small and has a nice little pool where you can view the ocean and the beach is nice. The water off the hotel is not the super blue water you will find at the beaches along the north west side of the island but okay for taking a swim and cooling off. There are a large number of restaurants within walking distance but we would suggest you rent a car for at least a few days so you can explore the island. We especially liked Plum beach which was quite and very beautiful.

I had many apprehensions about staying at this resort, but the newest reviews got better, so I tried it. It was a pleasant suprise. I had room 801 , with a balcony that overlooked the ocean & wrapped around to view the neighborhood & the streets. It was very quiet & extemly clean. I had a remodeled room, so everything was new. The wifi connection worked everyday during my week stay. The hotel staff are very pleasant, helpful & dressed in a classy uniform. They all seemed to be there to please you. Dawn , in reservations.was a big help with my reservation. The manager's cocktail party on Mon night was a lot of fun & dancing. The hotel is connected to the Greenhouse Restaurant, which is convenient for lunch, snacks & drinksThey have a private beach with chairs & umbrellas provided. The water is clear blue turquoise & very refreshing.I walked by the pool everyday to go to the beach, but never used it. The security staff makes you feel very safe. I will most definately go back.

There's nothing particularly fancy about the Atrium, but it totally delivers a pleasant lodging experience. Secure parking was free (had trouble finding this out in advance, so I was glad to discover it), it's conveniently close to the airport (about a 5-minute drive), it has a beach and pool, and it's walking distance to a convenience store (just across the street), an ATM, and a few shops and restaurants.

My room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable, the sheets were clean, the pillows were decent, and there was air conditioning in the room (that could also be used simply as a fan). All the employees were very kind, and they even let me store my bag for a few hours so I didn't have to leave it in the rental car (the rental car company told me not to leave anything in the car).

My wife and I stayed here on the second week of our trip to St. Maarten. We had a corner suite on the 8th floor. View was excellent.
Kitchen was well equipped and very modern. Lots of living space and huge bedrooms. Bathrooms were large as well.
Balcony was spacious with mountain view, but had wonderful view of beach and harbor.
Green House Restaurant is located on the grounds. don't miss their Bang Bang shrimp!
On Monday evening, the Atrium has a reception with music, prizes and lots of food and drink. We even won a free meal!
Very convenient location to airport with great view of planes departing and arriving.
Right up the hill is the Hollywood Casino.

Room Tip: Corner suites have wrap-around balconies

The Atrium is superbly located beach side in Simpson Bay. We had a 2 bed apartment on the 6th floor with stunning sunset views from its large wraparound balcony. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, everything we needed/expected was available and in good working order. Importantly, the rooms were clean and were kept clean by the excellent maid service. Any time I had a query or needed help either the staff at the front desk were able to resolve or send someone promptly who could.
The nearby beach had plenty beach chairs available for Atrium guests. Personally, I didn't like the Greenhouse Bar but as the Buccaneer Bar is right next door there was no problem getting a drink/food whilst sunbathing on the beach.
There is a well stocked, although pricey, supermarket on the corner of the main road and a smaller shop selling water etc directly opposite the Atrium. In other words, everything is on hand if you wish to stay in the resort. I wouldn't recommend that though, there are many many good restaurants nearby. We had delicious meals in Jimbo's, Pineapple Pete's, Bavaria and the best breakfasts on the island thanks to Top Carrot.
We did hire a car, through Thrifty, to get round the rest of the island. The dollar buses which are cheap and frequent, can sometimes take forever and are not the most comfortable but are essential for getting in and out of Philipsburg during the day.
The downside of the Atrium is that it is a little dated. Also, as it's right on Simpson Bay it can be a little noisy at night.
Have stayed a number of times over the years and would go again tomorrow if I could. loved it :-)
